no you have a brake fluid leak somewere

It would be the rubber pad that sits on your brake pedal. Unless they were referring to brake pads, which are the pads which enables your vehicle to stop by pressing the brake pedal.

The brake pedal will go to the floor but will have absolutely no effect on stopping the vehicle. When you push on the brake pedal it moves the fluid through metal tubes (called brake lines) to force the brake pads against the rotor which slows and stops the car. No fluid means nothing is in there to make the brake pads engage the rotors.

Brake pads are the pads that sit on top of the rotor that when the brake pedal is pressed the brake pads squeeze the rotor and the car stops. Signs that they need replacing are if you hear squeaking when pressing the brake pedal.

ouch,are brakes adjusted correctly/ sit in vehical and pump pedal to get a full pedal,then hold pedal to see if it bleeds off and goes to floor,if it stays, replace shoes and pads if it goes to floor, there is a fluid leak somewhere is there brake fluid in the resevoir/ are there any brake fluid leaks ,check backside of wheels there is a brake fluid pump, on the chassis rail about level with the front of the front door on the left side.if this pump is bad your pedal will go to the floor

Probable causes: Low or no fluid in reservoir; Worn brake pads/shoes; Air in brake lines; Leaking brake line.

a low brake pedal indicates worn brake pads and shoes.have then replaced

When you rotated the rear caliper pistons inward to create extra gap for the new, thicker, pads, you created extra space. When you hit the brake pedal, the piston is now rotating outward with each pump of the pedal to fill the space between the rotor and pads. When you pump the pedal, you're pushing the fluid back into the calipers until the pads and rotors meet. When this occurs, the pedal becomes firm again.

A brake pedal going directly to the floor is a sign of a few things. First, you are in need of brake fluid. Second, the brake pads are probably almost worn out. They may be worn out past the point the ABS light would be active. The ABS light may also be burned out.

You have to pump the brakes a few times after changing brake pads to take up the extra space until the pad touches the rotor. In extreme cases, you may have gotten air in the system and need to bleed the brakes. Make sure the reservoir stays full of brake fluid as you pump the brake pedal.

You need to remove the brake calipers, make sure that you push back the caliper pistons (monitor level of the fluid in the brake fluid reservoir, you might have to get rid of some). After that install you pads. Make sure that you have tighten everything properly. Press the brake pedal to check if your brakes are working. PS: Never press the brake pedal if brake system is not completely assembled.

make sure your brake pads are in good condition, a vibration in the brake pedal indicates a warped rotor to include worn front disk pads, make sure your front tires are not going bald, because they will do just as much vibration as a warped rotor when stepping on the brake pedal.

put new disks and pads in my 2005 V beetle bleed them and brake pedal still not to the top go down about 2inchs how do i get a nice hard pedal

Pads are worn out, and your Mater Cylinder is possibly bad. Inspect the brake pads and replace as necessary. Inspect the rotor for damage and have it turned or replace it. If after replacing the pads/rotors, if the brake pedal slowly goes down when applying the brakes, replace the master cylinder.

You need to bleed the brakes. Loosen the bleeder valve on one of the calipers and have someone press and hold the brake pedal. Tighten the valve and release the brake pedal. (If you let off of the pedal with the valve loose, air will be drawn into the system and make the problem worse.)

Soft pedal is caused by air in the system. Bleed the brakes starting at RR, then LR, RF, and ending at LF.

reverse then hit the brakes hard do this a few time and the self adjusters should adjust for you

if brake pedal is soft , either there is air in the system ,a brake fluid leak, or brake linings and pads are worn allowing the pedal to travel to far if there is a fluid leak, this can usually be found by getting under vehicle and looking at inside of wheels for brake fluid

They transfer the pressure you applied at the brake pedal to the brake pads against the brake rotors, stopping or slowing down the wheels from turning.

there is no reset on the brake pads, you can check your brake pads sensors they will make the light come on

the answer to this is questions is get on the floor

brake shoes are used with drum brakes and are " spread out " when the brake pedal is applied ( brake shoes are used for the rear brakes on 1991 to 1994 Ford Explorers ) brake pads are used with disc brakes and squeeze on both sides of the brake rotor when the brake pedal is applied ( 1995 and newer Ford Explorers have disc brakes front and rear )
